Photo submitted. The following article was taken from the May 2013 issue of the Warren County Historical Society newsletter. "From the Front Lines: Norwalk Civil War solider John Kern, Ben Kern's great-great-grandfather, provided detailed ac- counts of the Civil War. He was a major in Company H of the 34th Iowa Volun- tary Regiment. He kept a diary from June 1863 through November 1864. This diary contains troop movements, weather con- ditions and soldiers' pay. "June 19, 1863 - We are on picket guard (Co. H) Were on all night. Had no loss. We could see the En- emy making preparations for our attack. "June 21, 1863 - Had a busy day - brisk firing all day. Some narrow escapes but none hurt. Were fired on dueing the night. "Kern writes that in late June many of the men were getting sick and the company was allowed a few days to rest. On June 29, he was recommended for the rank of major. "July 3- 5,1863 - Desert- ers came in frequently. In the evening, a truce was hoisted and terms of ca- pitulation are being nego- tiated. We anticipate a glo- rious 4th .... Glorious day. Vicksburg surrendered. Praise God & take cour- age. "In early August, Kern himself writes that he was suffering from "ague" (malaria). Those with it suffered from fever and shakes. By Aug. 10, he writes that he received his commission as major. "Sept. 3, 1864 - while stationed in Fort Morgan, Ala - There seems tobe no very cheering war news.

Rick Hardy, Sesmlaty (Clerk, S~cretary) How long O'God will this murderous war continue? "In November he writes about election day and not voting, figuring that Lin- coln will be overwhelm- ingly re-elected anyway. By mid-month, his belief had turned negative: 'I do not feel hopeful & buoy- ant. I am sorry that my confidence in Grant is so tittle & Lincoln seems to be a failure. He has managed to divide the North & he has worked more for po- litical success than for res- toration of the Union. God save tls!' "John Kern served in the Civil War from August 1962 [mis-prjnt, should be 1862] until he was dis- charged on Nov. 25, 1864. He returned to Norwalk to farm the site where Ben Kern lives with his family today. John Kem's sword survived a Christmas Eve fire in 1927 that burned down the house on the Kern farm. The case and part of the handle were burned in the fire, but the sword was recovered from the ashes." ) Bike Safety Winners The Norwalk Police Department and Norwalk Fire Department, along with the Norwalk Parks and Rec co-sponsored a Bike Safety Day. Participants had their bikes inspected, rode a safety course and listened to a guest speaker on safety. Each participant was given a free t-shirt along with a new helmet and was eligible for a drawing that was held. This year's winners of the bikes were- Anna Lundberg, Matthew Palen, Kolten Hill and Liana Davis. The pool pass win- ners were David Manson and Madison Smith. Additional helmets left over from the event are free to those who need them. Stop at the Parks and Rec office to obtain one.
